BAR HARBOR — The Community School, a place-based Waldorf-inspired independent school, is set to open on Mount Desert Island in the fall of 2014.

An informational session and conversation about the school is set for the Jesup Memorial Library, 34 Mount Desert St. in Bar Harbor, on Tuesday Feb. 4 beginning at 6 p.m. All are welcome.

“The Community School aims to use the local community and environment as our classroom to explore subject areas across the curriculum in ways that are relevant, creative and hands-on; fostering a sense of place, a sense of self, and a deeper understanding and stewardship for our community and the world,” says organizer Jasmine Smith.
